After writing about Lee Valley for the anticipated Olympic canoe slalom races for more than two years, I finally had the opportunity to view it from water level. The Olympic course is harder than if looks! It is tiring, the drops are big and visibility down a pending drop is very limited so in slalom you would really have to know your exact line. I was surprised how boily the sides of the course are.
I have been asked to contribute to the ICF Planet Canoe, describing this use of social media in communicating Olympic canoeing.
It was observed that my boat is a little long!
